"Bob did an excellent job with the whole process. I am a first time home buyer and he walked me through and explained every step. I will gladly recommend him to anyone."

– Jennifer Froiland, December 2014

"Bob was very attentive to our needs and always available for us to visit with. He was like a family member due to the fact our house was a tough sell related to location. I used this term to describe him "MARE" = Most Amazing Realtor Ever. Hats off to you Bob."

– Jerry & Barb Hall, October 2014

"Working with Bob was great. I was nervous about the selling process since I live out of state and Bob made it all okay. Loved working with him."

– Destiny Hastings, February 2014

Thanks so much Bob! We love the house and the area, and the kids LOVE their new school. Thank for the recommendations. Thanks again!

– James & Paula Blumhofer, October 2012

"Bob was great, amazing, even with bumps in the road he made everything feel smooth. When it comes time to buy/sell he will be the first person I'll look for. I have already given high recommendations to two others that they seek him out."

– Chris Pettit, August 2012

At first I was only looking at FSBO's by myself and had no desire to have a realtor. Even when Bob showed up at my workplace I was hesitant to accept his help. That ended quickly as we began looking at houses. He pointed out things I should have noticed. The house I bought is very sound and I could not be happier. Bob the Realtor is very honest and looked out for my best interests. He squelched the typical stero-typescommonly thought about Realtors. Thanks, Bob!

– Matt Nelson, October 2011

"Did an awesome job on everything. Thanks for all the hard work. Wouldn't change a thing."

– Joel & Andrea Rathje, August 2011

– Jeanne McGee, May 2011

"I had no worries knowing Bob was on top of things. It was a relief when surprises came up to know Bob was there to make sure things went smoothly"

– Jess Dirks, May 2011

"It was a pleasure to work with Bob. He was meticulous and made the sale of the house completely painless. Thanks again Bob, it was great working with you."

– Kelly Malone, April 2011

"Bob, you made this all much easier than what it might have been. I don't know that we would be in this house if not for you! Thank you so much!!"

– Vladimir & Becky Kazberouk, July 2005

"I was really impressed with Bob all the way around...I had no doubt that everything was being done correctly, accurately, legally, ethically and on time...I will recommend both Bob Kalous and Skogman every chance I get."

– Suzy Haars, December 2001

"We are living in the house we really wanted because of Bob's dedication to us. Bob followed through on every one of his promises, helping us find the right house to begin our lives together in."

– Kevin & Erika Lindblom, April 2004

"Bob, you did a fantastic job! You did more than expected. Thanks for all you did, Annette."

– Annette Henderson, August 2005

“I can't be brief! Sorry! Bob has the following attributes: Great Results: he priced our condo relative to the market and our condo had 2 offers within 4 days of listing. When the first buyer backed out, he reassured us and it was the 2nd offer that came through. He was encouraging and calming the entire way. Personable: we looked forward to seeing Bob and catching up with him each time we saw him. He is so personable and truly cared about the biggest financial decision of our lives. While very professional, we felt relaxed in his presence and like we were house hunting with a friend. Expert: Bob taught us what to look for when attending open houses. He also showed his knowledge with every house we viewed with him. He pointed out craftsmanship, and lack thereof. He pointed out the pros/cons of each house we were strongly interested in. Good Value: Bob explained costs, up front and honest. He works for his money and truly seems to enjoy his career. He earns every dime! On Time: Bob always beat us to a location! High Integrity: I can't say enough about what an outstanding realtor Bob is, but also what a GOOD person he is. Creative: Bob would ask first if okay to give his opinion or advice, and we encouraged his input (relied on it really) on the less-than obvious projects we could do to make a home ours. I can't imagine ever selling or purchasing a home without Bob Kalous guiding us.”

– Paul & Andrea Nus, January 2010

“Bob helped me find a condo in the Cedar Rapids area. He was an excellent resource, very helpful, and had my families best interest. I would recommend Bob to anyone who wants great service.”
